Destin Fishing Rodeo

Established in 1948, the Destin Fishing Rodeo is an integral part of Destin’s history, present and future. If you are looking for things to do in Destin during the fall, this should be at the top of your list.  Running October 1st through October 31st, it is the ultimate fishing tournament for saltwater anglers of all ages and is FREE to anglers fishing aboard a registered boat in the Rodeo.

The Rodeo has several divisions including Junior, Teen, Ladies and Senior, all with cash and prize awards. Virtually every gamefish is recognized with awards during the Rodeo. http://www.ilovedestin.com/destin-fishing-rodeo-underway/ http://www.ilovedestin.com/destin-fishing-rodeo-underway/Whether you are trolling inshore for King Mackerel, offshore for Marlin and Sailfish, or fishing the deep bottoms for Red Snapper and Grouper, you will be in the running for prizes.

Not a fisherman? You can still enjoy the view and fun. Stop by A.J.’s Seafood & Oyster Bar for weigh-ins every day on the docks from 10 am until 7 pm.

The Rodeo has expanded through the years to include all kinds of fun and memorable events for children of all ages. Look out for Shark Saturdays, Bruce Cheves Day, the Ringing of the Bell, the Kids FallFest, Rootin Tootin Rodeo Round-Up and more.
